Here are some simple ways to vary the layouts for this easy quick quilt.

I show the first 7 quilts (all using 24 blocks) all with the same 3 fabrics
so you can clearly see the different layout
of the colors and arrangements. The last quilt, #8, shows a scrappy look.

1. Below uses the "useful units" in pairs
with plain 8" squares of background fabric.
2. Below is the same arrangement as #1,
but the plain squares are 4" in center and border.
3. Below puts the "useful units" into pinwheel
blocks with same 4" squares as #2.
#4. Below uses pinwheels again, but this
time mixes 2 colors into the background.
#5. Below uses 2 different colors in 4" squares.
#6 Below mixes all 3 colors into the 4"
background squares.
#7 Below uses a scrappy look. Several
different fabrics fill in the 3 color groups
instead of just 3. Fun with novelty prints!
